A MOD Safety 101 Overview
Modding simply isn’t for everyone. Then who is it for, you may ask. MODs are becoming increasingly popular, but just because something is popular doesn't mean you should jump into the trend. Mechanical MODs, Box MODs, and even squonking devices are for the more experienced vaper, and we will now share some tips on how to logically move into this next phase of your vaping endeavor to enjoy your vape flavors even more.
1) Always make sure that you physically see the MOD before you purchase: To put it into perspective, you wouldn't purchase a car without doing your initial inspection to make sure everything is working correctly. It's the same with mechanical MODs, you need to make sure it works correctly and that you like it.
2) Constantly check the batteries of the MOD: You need to make sure your batteries are always running properly. You need to constantly check the batteries' voltage. If you run the batteries on low for too long, they may end up losing their battery life, if you run them lower than low, they will no longer be operational
3) Check that there's a lock for the firing button or pin: This could be a potential danger. If it doesn't have a locking button or pin, your device may be firing itself continuously if you put it in your backpack or fall asleep without locking it.
4) Check the device for any air holes: Your MOD must have these air holes. In a boat, a hole would be your enemy, in a MOD, air holes are your friends. These holes allow gases to leave the MOD if your battery were to malfunction. You check for these air holes, or air vents, by blowing through your MOD when it's locked and unlocked.
5) Understand Ohm's Law and battery amp limits: If you’re a beginner at vaping, or don't know about this or battery amperage limits, modding isn’t for you and you will need to know more. To create your own MOD, you will need to know the level of resistance, how many amps are being pulled from the battery, and the amp limit. If you pull too many amps at too low of a resistance, you may have a big safety issue.
6) Check coil resistance and temperature: This ties in with the previous tip. If your MOD is overheating, then you need to stop it right away and get it inspected.
7) Finally, do your research: You wouldn't want to invest in a stock that promises a two-hundred percent return, without doing your due diligence. Do the same for your MODs and seek advice from professionals within the industry.
